Many Edmontonians live within a 10-minute walk of a natural area park. These parks are different from conventional, manicured parks. They are managed in a way that puts nature first, by protecting native wildlife habitat and natural processes. These parks also let us learn about nature right in our own backyard.
City-wide Natural Area Management Plan
To effectively manage this natural area system, the City developed theto support the management of the ecological network as a whole.
The plan sets out guiding principles, management objectives and strategies that are common to all natural areas throughout the City. When a new natural area is protected, the objectives and strategies are applied to the new site.
In addition, when a new natural area is protected, a site-specific management plan will be developed for that area. The site-specific plan provides additional management strategies based on the unique features and management requirements of that particular natural area site.
This map provides information about the natural area parks in Edmonton's tablelands (the flat lands above the River Valley and ravines). Explore these natural area parks and learn how to access them, and what plants and wildlife you might find at each.
